I have two pairs of the C&J Savile, one in black and one in brown, both size UK 9.5E. I've had both for several months and wear them 1-2 times a week. The black seems to fit perfect, while the brown is still slightly tight in the width. Or perhaps my foot seems to sit in a better spot in the shoe in the black. the length is identical. Is it possible that there is a noticeable difference in width for the same shoe size? Should I try to have a cobbler stretch the...
from what I've heard steam cleaners are best for suits ... not that great for shirts
RE the lapel roll, how does one ensure that this is maintained when one has a suit pressed or dry cleaned (which I know shouldn't be done too often)? Do good dry cleaners know what to do or does it need tdo be emphasized?
yes, that would be yours truly. It looked too good to pass up. Will let you guys know how it turns out.

I've been looking to purchase a blue blazer for awhile now, and have narrowed it down to wanting a 2-button single breasted w/ dual vents. A couple of questions: 1) buttons: Still not sure what I want to do for the buttons. Does the button color also dictate shoe color, e.g., would you wear black shoes w/ gold buttons? or brown shoes w/ silver buttons? 2) Zegna: I've seen the Zegna 2-button at NM for $1695 which is a bit more than I want to spend, but it...
price drop to $200 plus shipping ... last call before I post on Ebay ... anyone interested? edit: actually, didn't realized that there isn't a notification for PM's ... just checked and apparently SFers' have been PMing me about the shoes for the last month! I'll put the price back to the 250 for now ...
